Condi Rice says we’re ready for a black president. Okay, but not you, Condi…let’s not forget that you:
- were the National Security Advisor who didn’t advise us pre-9/11 on the al-Qaeda threat,
- fired off the “mushroom cloud” threat to sell us the Iraq War
- shopped for shoes during Katrina, and
- moved on to being the most non-functional Secretary of State in recent memory.
- are not liked very well by Laura Bush.
PFC Jace Badia and Congratulator-in-Chief Bush
Sorry, this photo op is over the line. Look at this man’s right arm. We don’t know what else is wrong with him but that skull cap looks suspicious. A little Googling reveals:
… Jace Badia, a 1999 graduate of Sacred Heart
Academy was serving in the Army in Iraq and was severely injured
this past week in a combination of two bomb blasts, the first as he
was driving and his vehicle was hit by an IED then again when the
medical crews were attempting to evacuate him to receive care.
We understand that Jace is receiving care in Germany at this time
and will soon be returned to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in
Washington, D.C., where his wife Susan (also an SHA alumnae)
and 4-month old daughter, Kylie will be joining him as he begins
what will be a long period of recuperation and rehabilitation. Our
prayers are with Jace, and all of his family.
It’s nice that Bush visited a wounded man, but the “congratulations” is pathetic. Yes, he did get a Purple Heart. But he’s not exactly beaming….thanks and condolences would be appropriate, not this “lucky you” shit. But that might be just a little too real for the fratboy; this is just another Katrina photo-op. Pathetic manipulation. Our men and women deserve better. Much better. How about, for starters, Bush goes to Fort Carson, CO, and straightens them out on caring for people with post traumatic stress disorder.
